Bill Belichick gives Tom Brady an earful

Getty Images

With his 42nd birthday only six days away, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady apparently is feeling spry.

A clip from Sunday’s practice shows Brady calling a run play when, presumably, he wasn’t supposed to.

No f–king run!” Belichick can be heard yelling in the clip of the exchange. “No f–king run!”

It’s hard to make out what happens next. Brady doesn’t engage Belichick, but he also doesn’t tuck his tail between his legs.

The broader point is that, even after Brady has established himself as the greatest quarterback of all time and perhaps the best player at any position in the 99-year history of the league, Belichick won’t be tiptoeing on eggshells around #Tommy.

  1. Brady is not the greatest of all time. Johnny Unitas was never federally convicted of cheating.

  2. Probably more for the rookies & rest of the team so that they KNOW THAT NOBODY is beyond his wrath….. NOBODY, not even the G.O.A.T.!!!!!!

  3. Keep running that ball, Tom. Your 42 year old knees are indestructable.

  4. It’s for the rest of the team to see that nobody is above the coach. Highly likely they planned it.

    Even in light of the cheating, Brady is the GOAT…and it’s still BB’s team.

  5. The Federal court system has no jurisdiction over, or interest in, cheating in professional sports. What the courts do have interest in is labor laws. Federal court concluded that the league did not have proof that any cheating occurred. The court ruled that, Under the current CBA, the league doesn’t need proof to suspend.

  6. Tom Brady really is the GOAT when there are more non-Patriots fans than actual Patriots fans commenting. The greatest are always in the back of everyone’s minds. Anyways, Brady will be fine. Belichick gave him a new software update. He’s good for another three seasons.

  7. Yeah I’m sure it was all a show for the rookies, not a coach worried that the lifeblood of his team is an old man in football years and running when he doesn’t have to on a knee that has been injured.

  8. It wasn’t a trial so it was impossible to have a “conviction”.
    The NFL admitted in court that they had zero evidence of anyone actually cheating.
    2 of the 4 judges didn’t rule in favor of the NFL. The Chief justice even ruled against the NFL and wrote a dissenting opinion.

    The NFL initiated the abuse of the court system so they controlled the timing. The NFL ran to the court in NY so the NFL could dictate the location. The NFL made sure the court was in New York which helped get 2 judges (probably Jets fans) to go along with the farce based on contract law. There was no avoiding the media smear campaign for anyone that went anywhere a radio or television or the Internet. That quantity of spin could have easily influenced someone who was biased against the Patriots. Those 2 judges went along with what was an obvious railroad job to anyone who actually paying attention that was able to understand 7th grade science. The 2 smart judges ruled against the NFL.

    Science will always say there was no cheating. The NFL is still hiding the PSI data because science can’t lie.

    Tom Brady was also never federally convicted of cheating. In fact, neither Tom Brady nor Johnny Unitas were ever “convicted” of cheating, anywhere, that is one thing they have in common.

    Tom Brady is the Greatest NFL Player of All-Time.

    Johnny Unitas is the Greatest Colts Player of All-Time.

    Both great players, no shame there either.

    BB won with Vinny Testeverde and Matt Cassell. If Brady went down this year, he’d be in the AFC championship game with Brian Hoyer. Recognize the G.O.A.T. I really think he’s a once in a lifetime football savant.

  11. People keep saying if this QB or that QB has Belichick as coach, he would have multiple Super Bowls too. Well, tell me which QB can really take this kind of coaching before their ego gets crushed? Brady’s greatness comes from the fact that he is the greatest in being coachable and accepting ideas that helps him winning games not padding stats.

  12. @realfootballfan

    Remind me again what Vinny and Cassel won? Pretty sure… nothing. Not even close. A handful of regular season games vs Brady who averages a Super Bowl appearance EVERY OTHER YEAR he has played. Yeah, sure, perspective, pal.

    Just shaking my head at the absurdity of this cornment. It’s not even worth any sort of rebuttal. No disrespect intended to Johnny Unitas.

  14. Nothing new. Ex-Pats have anecdotes of BB doing that to Brady… Johnny Foxboro can replace him as QB so BB told him.

  15. Can’t stand the guy, but there can be no doubt about BB’s methods, Treating any player with even a hint of favoritism would be the antithesis of what he’s about. Everyone has their job – from that perspective, he treats Brady the same as a punter.

    I wish more businesses were like that.

  16. Just today Bennett says its nice to have a coach whip treats you like a human being, then we got this guy swearing at the supposed best player ever for going with what he saw on the field.

    Brady is nothing without Belichick.
    ——————————————
    “nothing without Belichick” is laughable. Flat-out laughable.
    BB has had 6+ seasons as a Head Coach without Brady and won nothing. Not even close. In fact I’m not even sure he’s .500. And he had QB’s like Testeverde and Bledsoe; not exactly stiffs. Bottom line; you can offer no proof..at all..that Belichick made Brady because there’s no proof that exists. BB was 5-13 in his first 18 games in NE until Bledsoe got hurt..and 4 months later Belichick and Brady were hoisting a Lombardi. On the other hand you can certainly make a case that Brady made Belichick.

  18. Brady The GOAT 1. Master Of The Pocket 2. CLUTCH 3. Leadership, as he and Belichick work together to get this young teram prepared.

  19. Only Tom Brady could score 380 points with the squad Belichick gave to him between 2001 and 2006.

  20. Johnny Unitas was never federally convicted of cheating.
    ————————–
    Old Johnny was never “federally convicted” of winning the in the clutch like the GOAT either.

  21. Evidently greatness is now acceptable for those who cheat and break NFL rules. No wonder I watch less and less of the NFL – it is sad that in the days where QB’s were hit that some careers were cut short so that Brady could draw flags for breathing on him on his way to greatness.

  22. Remember when I heard Chad Ochocinco who came to the Patriots and was shocked when Billecheck yelled at Brady.He said you could never do that to Carson Palmer he was the Golden Child.Thats what makes Patriots so Great they treat everyone equal.There no Diva in that team if there was he was shown the door.

  23. Once again, the insecure Tom Brady thinks he’s can run as fast as the young players in the NFL. What’s next is he going to take up skateboarding to feel young again?

    It’s cute that you call it insecure. Real football fans know it’s hunger. Guy is always hungry for more wins and that’s why he’ll always achieve more than whoever you think you’d rather have instead of him.

    So if someone like Cam Newton or Aaron Rodgers did the same thing you would call it hunger? Homerism at it’s finest.

    Why stop there? The what if’s are endless.
    The Dolphins have been nothing for decades regardless of coach or QB
    The Saints would be nothing without Brees
    The Colts have been nothing without Manning
    The Cowboys have been nothing without Aikman
    Steelers and Big Ben.
    Giants and Eli.
    The Jets…….well they are in a place of their own
